that means there is a very small amount of blood that leaks back through the tricuspid valve when it is closed and under pressure.  similar to a very tiny leak in your sink faucet valve.  When you consider how many times those valves open and close in one minute one would think they would leak more often.

The tricuspid valve is a one-way pass between the right side upper chamber(atrium) that receives blood from the system to be pumped to the lungs to be oxygenated.  Trace, slight, etc. is not considered medically significant and almost always does not progress nor cause any symptoms.

Interesting you only have information regarding a very insignificant issue. Do you have symptoms that indicate you may have a heart issue?

Thanks for sharing, and if you have any further questions or comments you are welcome to respond.  take care,

Ken
